Grand Prix of Spain and Dogu

Recommended Posts

What a travesty the JB-Chamizo series is.  First match was tainted by the worst mat conditions of all-time, and now nobody outside of the arena will get to see their second match.

 

Hopefully they fix it before the finals. I think the finals are tomorrow for the weights that started today

True but they have the ability to move guys around if the draw comes out that way. There were two frost round matchups that were the same country vs same country. Seems like an easy fix...

i don't think they are supposed to be able to move people around. it is supposed to be a random draw. 

 

once you come up with a reason to 'move guys around' you open the door to all sorts of shadiness. that was the whole point of random draw. also of the rankings events, which are designed as a fair and objective way to create 'seeds'.

109 | Mat C  Fatih ERDIN (TUR) vs. Murad SULEYMANOV (AZE)  96 | Mat A  David Morris TAYLOR (USA) vs. Ahmet BILICI (TUR) 

 

 

Taylor gets Bilici of Turkey in the semis.  

 

Erdin (Turkey) is in the other semifinal against AZE.   Taylor pinned Erdin at Yarygin earlier this year.

11-0 and then the FALL. That is walking the walk. 

 

 

Yuck.  Let's reign it in a little on the Makoev win. Outside of his run to silver last year, the guy has been a standard journeyman.  Never placed at Euros.  Never placed at Yarygin. Never even placed at the Ukranian... DNP in a weight where Rich Perry took 2nd.

If you learn how to spell (or pronounce) the full name of the Iranian, you should get an honorary trophy.

maybe, but makoev beat torreblanca of Cuba soundly and beat jden on his way to the finals. Not a cakewalk. If taylor beats him by a couple points, ok, no biggie, but he destroyed him.
